The Art of Mukimono
Mukimono (剥き物) is the traditional Japanese art of decorative garnishing. Examples of this include carving traditional images into skins of fruit and vegetables, as well as carving vegetables (such as daikon, carrot, eggplant) into attractive shapes such as flowers, twists, and fan shapes. These are commonly served as a garnish on the same plate as the meal, or on a small side plate. Participants will work with our Executive Chef to learn how to do simple fruit and vegetable carvings.
Join our Chef and learn the proper way to hold and use a knife in the kitchen. Participants will learn some basic knife skills and a few kitchen tricks followed by some practice time.
